Review rate : B+

“..will inspire many a socioeconomic academic treatise. It's a rare Hollywood beast, and a Nolan specialty..”
by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News]
Review rate : B

“..the strong middle and ending roar past these problems and leave things feeling nicely complete..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
“..the movie may not top The Avengers at the worldwide box office, but it is a far, far better thing - maybe the best, most troubling, assured and enthralling of all the superhero movies..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
“..notable for many things-thrilling chases, supercool vehicles, majestic vistas, an epic scale that hasn't been achieved since "The Lord of the Rings," a redemptive climax that brings an end, more or less, to a complex saga..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
3.5 of 4

“..it is visually bold and masterfully paced..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]

4 of 4

“..imposingly dark and hugely entertaining..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..hugely ambitious action-drama nonetheless retains the moral urgency and serious-minded pulp instincts that have made the Warners franchise a beacon of integrity in an increasingly comicbook-driven Hollywood universe. Global B.O. domination awaits..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

“..brings the Batman story to a close in enormous, satisfying fashion, not just on the huge scale it builds for itself, but on a human level as well..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..although The Dark Knight Rises ends in a furious finale of chaos, carnage, and cataclysm, the filmmaker has brought things to a satisfying closure..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..a truly grand finale raises Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy to the peak of big-screen comic book adaptations..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

WETLANDS :

“..Juri's performance makes it impossible to divert your eyes from the screen, no matter how much you might want to, and a brave film that eventually succumbs to convention is still braver than most..”
by David Ehrlich [Film.com]

GOD HELP THE GIRL :

“..the cutesiness will entice/repel viewers in equal measure, but it has a lot of heart, and displays it on its sleeve..”
by Emma Johnston [Total Film]

FRONTERA :

“..Frontera is, on a whole, more interested in situations than characters-Pena, a stoic onscreen presence..”
by Andrew Lapin [The Dissolve]

THE LONGEST WEEK :

“.."The Longest Week" quickly becomes mimicry, losing any emotional pull as it strives to preserve the hospital corners of other, better helmers..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

HEAVENLY SWORD :

“..a pretty predictable and unexciting video..”
by Jeffrey Kauffman [Blu-ray.com]

CANTINFLAS :

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
